I am pretty sure...

The rifle is a Mauser M88 with a cut of magazin.

Please google "Mauser M88" pictures,... you will see rifles with and without Magazin.

I am awaiting answer from the owner who will measure the length of the round..(y)(y)(y)(y)

Dear Gert.... this rifle has a collectors value..... do not change anything,... do not fire the ammunition, because this cartrides are also collector items,...keep even the old box!!!

I can make ammunition for you, I have all the equipment necessary...

Yes, I think so,.... they are rare, but it is a fine cartrige.

Some experts say, it had headspace problems, because of the slim sholder, but a reloader can avoid this by simply neck sizeing.

Yes, it shoots great, accurate and very light to carry around as a walk stalk rifle..I really am shooting this rifle well... It has bees standing in a a safe for twenty years, only fired fifteen rounds before I got it from a Professor of mine while I was studying..I love the rotating magazine...(y)(y)(y)

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
